  2. >two fucking health tanks worth of damage per hit
    So you’ve only played like 2 hours and fought one boss? Later bosses do ~6 tanks in a hit on normal.

  3. That isn’t what makes the game hard. What makes it hard is the control scheme. Using both shoulder buttons during boss fights all the time is giving me carpal tunnel

  4. Yeah the damage is kinda bullshit and frustrating. But at least fights are quick to get back into, and don’t take very long once you figure them out.

    • I think what would bother anyone is the fact that it is a perfect example of artificial difficulty. Early on, the game railroads you into a certain direction with certain powerups and upgrades (like energy tanks and more missiles) totally unavailable. This creates artificial challenge because the developers have made it more likely that you will take have less health going into a fight.

      I’m not saying its too hard "waah," but it is annoying that its such a contrived mechanic.

  5. You mean Metroid finally takes advantage of the bajillions of health you get?
    Took them long enough. In basically every Metroid game, the moment you get 4 energy tanks, you become borderline unkillable because enemies do such little damage.

  6. I’ve been informed by twitter that if you find any part of this game difficult or get stuck then you’re a worthless casual that should just quit and return the game because you’re not intelligent or hardcore enough for it like them. This mentality on one of the biggest social media platforms definitely isn’t going to turn people away at all, don’t be silly.

  7. >if you’re just trying to figure out a tell for the first time
    For lots of these attacks, you’re not supposed to figure out the tell on the first try. They give you a checkpoint right before the boss so that you can try again quickly.

    It may be a drastically different game, but Metroid Dread subscribes to the same Dark Souls/Monster Hunter school of "Throw yourself at the enemy over and over until you learn the tells."

    • Because Thirdies are used to eternal strife, so they bring it to the internet as that is what they are comfortable with.
      It’s all the Thirdie knows.
